About the Yukon

Whether your passion lies in pursuing outdoor adventures, participating in cultural events and festivals, or enjoying the towering mountains, boreal forests, sweeping tundra, and rushing rivers, you'll find it in Yukon.

There is no shortage of activities for the outdoor enthusiast. From summer to winter, Yukon's wilderness plays host to unforgettable outdoor adventures. Canada's Yukon is every paddler's paradise and has numerous hiking, biking, and riding trails that showcase breathtaking mountain ranges filled with wildlife and over 70 wild rivers. Take a day trip to enjoy whitewater rafting, glacier sightseeing, and bird watching, or go dog sledding, snowmobiling, or cross-country skiing on some of the best trails in Canada.

Where else can you sleep beneath the northern lights, dance under the midnight sun, and witness the migration of the Porcupine caribou herd? In Yukon, you'll discover the majesty of our national parks, and will have a first-rate view of Mount Logan, Canada's highest peak.

There's no limit to what you can do in Yukon.
